Commitment to Accessibility
Web Compliance Pro, on behalf of Glucroft Investigations, firmly believes that the Internet should be available and accessible to anyone, and are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability.
To fulfill this promise, we aim to adhere as closely as possible to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible to people with a wide array of disabilities. Complying with those guidelines helps us provide a site that is accessible to all people, for the blind, deaf, motor and cognitive impaired.
This website utilizes various technologies all meant to make it more accessible. In addition to building the website with accessibility features, we have installed and configured software to help increase the level of accessibility for all people with disabilities. This software allows users to modify the user interface to make the website more accessible. Accordingly, the website’s accessibility features include:
Accessibility Features Toolbar
Ability to activate the Accessibility Features Toolbar by pressing ALT-Z on the keyboard, or TABBING to the Accessibility Interface and pressing ENTER.
Users can increase and decrease the font size to a size that is easier to read. Users in Chrome can also increase or decrease the size of all page elements by pressing CTRL+PLUS or CTRL+MINUS. The pages of this site have been tested and remain intact and functional up to Two-Times magnification.
Contrast and Color adjustments
Users can select various color contrast profiles such as white-on-black or black-on-white, increasing contrast. Users can also Invert the color scheme.
The site was intentionally built with no rapid or recurring animations on the site. There are only some slow-moving animations when some of the graphical elements appear for the first time.
Users can choose to emphasize important elements such as links, either with underlines or a bright yellow background.
Keyboard Navigation Helper
Users can turn on the Keyboard Navigation Helper to highlight the element currently in focus. This is a feature common in screen readers, but this feature was created for use without a screen reader.
The site was built with no video or audio content on the site. Accordingly users without the ability to hear have the same experience as those with full hearing.
Screen Reader Optimization
ARIA tags were used on the website to add context to links, so that rather than simply hearing “Read More,” the user can hear more information about the link’s destination.
ALT Tags were created for all of the images on the website so that screen readers can inform users of the contents of significant or relevant information in those images.
All forms have appropriate labels so that all users can know what information is to be entered into each form element.
Screen Reader Testing
The entire website was tested for Accessibility using the JAWS 2020 screen reader and Google Chrome on April 5, 2020. The website was found to be fully functional via Keyboard Navigation using JAWS. With JAWS, users can:
- Navigate Regions forward and backwards using the R and Shift+R keystrokes.
- Navigate Headings forward and backwards using the H and Shift+H keystrokes.
- Navigate Links forward and backwards using the L and Shift+L keystrokes.
- Activate Links using the ENTER or SPACEBAR keystrokes.
- Navigate Menus forward and backwards using the TAB and Shift+TAB keystrokes.
- Select a Drop-Down Menu or Control using the ENTER keystroke.
- Close a Drop-Down Menu or Control using the ESCAPE keystroke.
- Navigate through a Dropped Menu or Control using the Up or Down arrow keys, or TAB and Shift+Tab keystrokes.
- Read Content starting from the Focus Point using INSERT+DOWN ARROW keystroke.
The website also has similar functionality using the NVDA Screen Reader and other web browsers.
Notes, Comments, and Feedback:
Despite our best efforts to make this website usable by people with varying needs and abilities, it is possible that there still may be pages, sections or content elements that are not fully accessible, or are in the process of being made accessible.
